    this means 3 ^x = 27 x = value of the log

    eg 10^2 = 100 so log (10) of 100 = 2

    here 2 ^x = 18 where x = required log now this cant solved by inspection as the other 2 could so you preceed as follows: ln 2^x = ln 18 where ln is natural log or log to base e by laws of logs x ln 2 = ln 18 x = ln 18 / ln 2 which you can do with your calculator
